Fred’s dream bookshop is becoming a reality, and Christmas is only days away. The toy store beckons Fred and her friend Katie, who dash in out of the cold during a shopping spree to discover handmade toys, cuddly stuffed animals...and a dying man on the floor. When Katie’s desperate attempts to save the man end in her being taken in for his murder, Fred once again dons her detective hat. But as quickly as clues point to one person, new discoveries shift the spotlight to another.

Chance Coalson loves women. And they love him. Young or old, no woman is immune to his charm. Except one. Georgia Haines is the only female volunteer firefighter in Grafton. She’s had a crush on Chance Coalson since he offered her his handkerchief at her momma’s funeral. But she’s smart enough to know that it takes a special woman to tame a charmer like Chance, and there’s nothing particularly special about her. So how does a man with a bad reputation convince a shy firefighter that he’s worth taking a chance on love?

This is the 2nd book in this series I have reviewed and I have to say the narration is still spot on but the story was lacking this time. Easy listen but not a lot of anything to want you to keep listening. I kept hoping it would get better.

This was it. Just a few more minutes and she would be home. At the moment though, the idea of coming home seemed more daunting than comforting. The oversized, glass-walled monstrosity her family had moved to in California had never felt much like home. Hell, she’d needed to use the intercom to call to the opposite side of the house. No, the quaint, ranch-style house she’d grown up in...that was home. Of course, home was situated in a place where everyone knew absolutely everything there is to know about...well...everyone.

When Ellie decides to sell the tea room, she doesn't bank on her twin daughters showing up with ideas of their own. Her daughters have both left home - Jessica is married and expecting her first child, and Marie has built a successful career. She is ready for change and to leave the past behind; however, her daughters are not. To complicate matters further, Ellie meets Michael. She was not looking to meet a man, but life occasionally throws in a few surprises. Maybe now is the right time to change more than just her work.

Beautiful, titled, and wealthy to boot, Lady Lydia Beaufort was expected to have a spectacular London Season. There was just one problem; the eccentric daughter of the Earl of Galway had no intention of becoming the ton’s darling. Especially if it involved humoring the awful herds of fortune hunters and greedy second sons, intent on making her their bride. All Lydia wanted was to be left alone in peace, to read her beloved Lord Byron. That is, until an incorrigible rogue of a Marquess burst into her life and turned all her ideas about love upside down.
